The copy-text is the final draft of Nancy F. Wohlforth’s speech delivered at the 23rd AFL-CIO Constitutional Convention in Los Angeles, CA. The speech text is based on what appears as the final and most polished draft of Wohlforth’s speech (=A). Two other handwritten and typed drafts exist, though they include multiple typographical errors, and parts of the content are marked up with a pen and changed to reflect the content of this final draft.

This transcript has been proofread for accuracy. I have retained the paragraph structure and punctuation of the document and paragraph numbers were added in brackets. In order, I have fixed
several typos when the fix was obvious so that the speech is more readable. The number corresponds to the speech paragraph in which the error occurred:

2: “targets of the hate groups” became “targets of hate groups”
2 & 5: “Mathew” became “Matthew”
6: “ok” became “o.k” to be consistent with other mentions in this speech
6: “issue” became “issues”
9: “Civil Rights movement” became “Civil Rights Movement”
